The Hornady machine is comparable to the Dillon 650. It has a superior powder measure and is easier (and cheaper) to changeover. The unloading wire requires tweaking, and the retaining spring requires care. It doesn't come with a spare parts kit because it doesn't need spare parts. The machine runs trouble-free. People who have used both Hornady and Dillon prefer the AP.

I wouldn't make a decision based on free bullets. The machine can stand on its own merits.

    I agree about that BUT 300 dollars of bullets goes a long way to paying for a 350 dollar reloader, ya know? I am really looking hard at the Hornady. I am not cheap but the reviews are very good on both of them. That being said how can I get a Dillon for 50 bucks? I thank all you guys for you views...Jim

    If your primary interest is the free bullets, why are you inquiring about the machine?

    Wm,
    The Hornady is a fine machine. I have one and really like it. I don't use it much but when I do it doesn't miss a beat. JohnnyK.
